Outreach and kultur.WIR programs

The Society offers cultural events for German-speaking seniors and residents, which are conducted in the German language. The community gathers twice a month, on Saturday afternoons at the German-Canadian Care Home. Events feature coffee and cake followed by a film, a speaker or a seasonal sing-along. Since their inception these events have been very well attended.

Ongoing donations to help the Society support and finance these events are much appreciated.  If you have any questions regarding this program or are interested in volunteering, please contact the Program Coordinator, Waltraud Custer at 604-713-6562 or In addition, the Outreach program includes a book exchange and a poetry club.

Weekly German Sing-along program for residents

A weekly German sing-along  is organized for Care Home residents, and members of the German community often also enjoy taking part.

Poetry Club

Once a month the poetry club meets in the Stuhlmueller Library of the Care Home to read, recite and enjoy German poetry.

If you are interested in participating please contact 604.713.6562, or e-mail
